Are you fixated on the number on the scale?? If so, you are not alone. It is a common issue. We get told what we should weigh without any consideration of what our body is made of. We are often made to feel fat or unhealthy purely by the number we see when we step on the scale. This number does not reflect your true health –stop fixating on that number!!
Your health is determined by a variety of factors. Your health and how you physically and mentally feel is greatly impacted by your body composition. Your body composition is the measure of how much muscle mass, water, bones/tissues, and fat your body has. You could be thin by the number on the scale but “fat” based on your body composition. If you have a lot of fat and very little muscle, this results in a lower number on the scale and is unhealthy for you. You could be losing weight but hurting your health by losing muscle and not fat.
Just following the number on your scale will not accurately tell you if you are gaining fat or losing muscle. If you are making lifestyle changes it is often difficult to see these changes on the scale but you can see them in your body composition.
How can you determine your body composition?
However you choose to monitor your body composition, remember to focus on what is inside of you rather than the scale.
